Food Pantry Orientation

EZRA's Food and Hygiene Pantry operates with a client-choice model, allowing clients to chose their own foods on a weekly basis. The pantry distributes more than 3,000 food bags and 1,500 hygiene bags a year, and thanks a recent pantry expansion, we're looking for volunteers to help the pantry continue to run smoothly.

There are opportunities to come in and work independently, putting away pantry donations and food deliveries. There are also opportunities to interact with clients during our open pantry hours on Wednesday afternoons. All pantry shifts take place during the business day Monday through Thursday, so daytime availability is necessary.

We ask that pantry volunteers make a minimum commitment of once monthly shifts for three months, but these shifts last no more than 2 hours. Of course, we encourage volunteers to come more often and to continue after three months, if desired.

Pantry orientation is required prior to volunteering in the pantry. The next orientation will take place Tuesday, July 26th from 10:30 am- 12:30 pm. We still have a lot of room in this orientation, and we'd love for you to head over to our website and sign up.

You can also call Allison Lewis at 773.467.3851 to be signed up over the phone or click "I want to help" above, and we'll reach out to you!
